As many of you have already heard, Dad passed away in March 2012. The legend is gone. LAPC awarded him with the Dennis Soares Memorial cup given away to all champions at the 2012 Pageant of Pigeons. What an honor to Dad, there have only been a hand full of others to recieve this honor.
Last year his loft of champions was brought to me to carry on his winning traditions. It was hard getting back into the swing of things without his input. But after weeks of just doing the basic caring for the birds I thought what would Dad do. So I got out there and went to work pairing up the best I could. There was a lot of moving birds around until I found the right ones that I think he would have approved on. I raised about 75 young in a short time. Show season came up quick and I'll tell you it was hard not having him there. Lots of tears and smiles but I knew he was watching. The National show in Washington was something. I came out with 6 color class winners : white, kite, splash, brown, almond and mealy. The white old cock a brother to Governor Arnold went reserve champion and Best Opposite Sex. The splash which is a son of the reserve white and the black hen 934 making him double Governor blood went 2nd reserve. It was a great show. Next came the Super Bowl of Jacobins and wow what a show. 7 color class winners in white, almond, kite, black, brown, blue, and andalusian. Champion went to the Almond, yes almond,. I also came away with second reserve with the same bird that won that award at the Nationals, BOS with an almond and Best Young with a beautiful little kite. What started out being a slow breeding season turnded into a great show season. I hope I made Dad proud and I'll continue doing his work and keepind DS Jacobins going strong.
2014 started out strong with all major wins at The Super Bowl of Jacobins. We 150 Jacobins at this years Super Bowl. My husband Dale and President of the Western Jacobin Club made all the awards for the show. My son Zachery and I hand painted all the wooden Jacobins to look like the color they represented. Great job Zach and Dale. We brought home several color class winners and ended the show with a bang. I had champion with a young black hen who was also BOS and best young. Reserve champion went to a yearling black cock raised and shown by me and 2nd reserve went to another yearling black cock of mine. I don't believe a show has ever been won with the same color for all top awards. What a night. Thanks to Tally Mezzanato for judging our Super Bowl.
